Book review: “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”
Reviewed by Carissa Lavin
The main character, Charlie, demonstrates how life is an ongoing thing. The reader learns many lessons from his experiences.
The novel starts the summer before Charlie goes to high school. He is terrified because he had drifted apart from his friends so no one had his back. The first few weeks were hard, but then he meets Sam and Patrick, two seniors who know the ropes of high school. They show him how to live and they teach him how to experience life. This novel depicts Charlie’s life as he goes through great highs and great lows and how he deals with everything that has happened to him his freshman year.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a wonderful, heartfelt novel that I personally believe everyone should read. It has changed the way I think about many things. It takes reading and comprehension skills, but the message it sends is well worth the thought it takes to understand.
